A research institute dedicated to developing clean energy technologies has been set up in the University of Nottingham, according to online news service The Register.

Scientists at the centre will work on several projects including developing ways to reduce fossil fuels’ carbon emissions and carbon storage. Projects are being funded by the UK’s research councils, the Department for Trade and Industry (DTI), and the EU.

“Under the looming threat of global climate change and our hunger for cost-effective and environmentally-friendly energy, new clean fossil technologies linked to carbon capture and storage, hydrogen fuel cells and natural sources of power such as solar and wind energy will all play a vital role in changing the way in which we use energy worldwide,” said Professor Colin Snape who will be heading the institute.
